Fortune favours the Wolves

28 May 2009 02:44
Marc-Antoine Fortune's agent has revealed the striker will likely be plying his trade with either Wolves or Fulham next season. The 27-year-old spent the second half of this term on loan at West Brom from French side Nancy, where he duly proved his Premier League credentials by netting five times in 17 starts for Tony Mowbray's relegated outfit. Baggies themselves are believed to be in the hunt to sign Fortune from Nancy on a permanent basis as the marksman discusses his future with his parent club. But, according to his agent, Fortune is keen to remain in the top flight and a move to their newly-promoted Black Country rivals or London looks the most likely option. "To my mind, he is going to sign with either Wolverhampton or Fulham, even if surprises can always happen," said Michael Manuello in the Express and Star. "Wolves and Fulham have expressed their interest in Marco's services. But I can't tell you when a deal will be done. "For sure, he wants to stay in the Premier League and he has proved that he has the talent to impose himself in this competition. It's easier to know how things will happen in France, whereas it's slightly more complicated in England."
